From the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
-- The Arkansas Forestry Commission Baucum Nursery has a new tree seedling purchase opportunity. The nursery has packaged a limited number of wildlife bundles containing northern red oak, cow oak, sawtooth oak, persimmon and pecan.
The one-year-old, bare root seedlings are packaged in bundles of 10 (two of each species) for $20, and each species is marked with a different color flagging.
The new wildlife bundles are only available by ordering online, and they must be picked up no later than March 31.
AFC seedlings are grown at Baucum Nursery for one growing season, except for 25 pack loblolly pine, which are two years old. When the seedlings become dormant in the fall, they are lifted and packed bare root (no dirt on the roots) for shipment to designated cooler locations.
